Picked up a new tow rig.

97 Ford F800
8.3 Cummins
Eaton Fuller 9 speed
Will pull anything...and anything...and everything.

I'll post up when I'm done. Plans are 4x4 conversion, Denali interior, Raptor paint in Jeep Liquid Charcoal Gray, Stereo, and power windows/locks.
Truck has been raptored in charcoal gray outside, black grill, black floor (over a bunch of dynamat), gray headliner, black door panels with carpet trim, and has front and rear Denali seats. Heated all the way around. Cold AC. Double Din Kenwood with backup camera. Tinted the windows. Turned up from 14psi (stock) to 28psi (estimate 350hp/1100lbft). Tows a jeep like it doesn't exist.

No pics yet, but I'm brand new to this and trying to set up my bone stock XJ for flat tow behind the motorhome.
I'm curious, what tow bars are you guys using? The price range is so drastic. $1,500 for a tow bar? Ouch.
Which combo tow bar/base plate have y'all found to work the best? Pros/cons? I don't mind spending a buck or two but geez, I'm just to figure out what's the best combo.

I've been using this one for years with no problems. Added the D ring adapters cause of my bumper but you can use regular the mounts fine as long as they're mounted solid. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0016KBT2G/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 D-ring mounts https://www.amazon.com/Warrior-Products-865-D-Ring-Adapter/dp/B004JB0Q1Y/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=warrior+d+ring&qid=1582145827&s=automotive&sr=1-2

Pay attention to the angle of rides at...especially if you're using a lightweight truck. Flat is good, bar at a steep angle is bad.
